Because it's not money your progeny earned (personal responsibility, pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, making it on your own and all the other RW talking points about self reliance), it's money YOU earned by using "the commons", therefore you should give some of it back to "the commons".so why do so many libs support death confiscation taxes and high rates of progressive income taxes
As for progressive taxation. You live in a democracy, which is a society. In a society, we must do some things for the common good even when we don't see a direct benefit for ourselves. A flat tax takes more usable and needed money from the poor. If you have $10 and poor joe only has $5 and you both buy a loaf of bread for $3, who has more money left over? That's how a flat tax works. The poor get poorer.
I asked you first and obviously you're obfuscating. I'll provide my sources right after you do. Deal?provide a source for your claims or I will continue to assume you are a liar
